Netflix released Season 1 of its much awaited period drama series ‘The Crown‘ on 4 November 2016. Believe it or not but The Crown has been called as a better period drama series than Downton Abbey. IMDB is being flooded with highly positive reviews and ratings of The Crown. Fans who are in touch with this period drama series know that Netflix has announced previously that it will explore the six decade long reigning of Queen Elizabeth II. Probably that was a hint for Six Seasons of The Crown. Netflix has already commissioned Season 2 of ‘The Crown’. But the big question is when The Crown Season 2 will premiere on Netflix?
The Crown TV Show Overview
Netflix announced its plan for a TV series on Queen Elizabeth II in 2015. British Playwright Peter Morgan pitched the idea to Netflix and somehow convinced them show the royal and lavish lifestyle of Queen Elizabeth II. The Crown is the costliest series by Netflix and its budget is around 100 Million POUND. Peter Morgan has already chronicled Queen Elizabeth II’s life with his play The Audience and 2006 film The Queen. Both met critical reviews and with the recent success of Season 1 of ‘The Crown’ we can expect that the future of the series is in safe hands.
The Crown Season 1
Season 1 of The Crown includes 10 episodes with each episode 1 hour long. Episode 1 of The Crown starts with Prince Philip being crowned as the Duke of Edinburgh, Baron Greenwich of Greenwich and Earl of Merioneth. We get to see the royal wedding of Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth II. Episode 10 title Gloriana marked the end of Season 1 of The Crown. We, the commoners, get to see various aspects of Queen Elizabeth’s early life and of course the much discussed romance of Princess Margaret and RAF Officer Peter Townsend.
Claire foy was flawless as Queen Elizabeth II and Matt Smith made the younger version of Prince Phillip look even more attractive. But they were not the only attraction of the show. Like other Netflix original series The Crown too has pleasing soundtrack. It is the next big hit by Netflix and it might repeat the success of ‘Stranger Things’.
Season 1 met critical acclaim and we are all looking forward to Season 2 of The Crown. Netflix announced in October 2016 that the shooting for Season 2 has already started even before the premiere of Season 1. The shooting will wrap up somewhere in early 2017 so we can expect that Season 2 will premiere earlier next year.
The Crown Season 2 Release Date
